    Unfortunately, we don’t. Maybe on youtube?

    Thursday, May 9th 2013

      Please I beg Engvid: never subtitle your lessons. I progress in English thank’s to you. Unfortunaly I too often use subtitle. That is not good for me. Kind regards

      Thursday, May 9th 2013

      i am also like to see your video with subtitle, please try to give subtitle in future

      Monday, May 13th 2013

      on taskbar on youtube you can see the auto translation, it’s not right most of time , i think it will be better if Endvid can have traslation in each video

      Friday, June 7th 2013

        We’re adding proper transcriptions to new videos!

        Sunday, June 9th 2013

      its strange..its like a miracle but i saw the subtitles on internet explorer and mozilla firefox but i doent see they on google chrome it dependent

      Sunday, June 23rd 2013

    I think if we don’t have subtitles we are able to practice the listening skills in lessons. I wouldn’t desire subtittles unless it will be optional. By the way, it was a great lesson, thanks Alex and EngVid site.

    Tuesday, June 11th 2013

    hi,you better understand the lesson without subtitles..try to watch the video again and again.so you can improve your listening skill.

    Monday, October 7th 2013

Tanks Alex
Very good lesson

by the way I have this question

My brother,that lives in France, is a teacher.

here the word (That)is correct? if no why?
tanks again.

Monday, May 6th 2013

    Yes you can!

    Look:

    Relative clauses add extra information to a sentence by defining a noun. They are usually divided into two types – defining relative clauses and non-defining relative clauses.

    Defining relative clauses

    Look at this sentence:

    The woman who lives next door works in a bank.
    ‘who lives next door’ is a defining relative clause. It tells us which woman we are talking about.

    Look at some more examples:

    Look out! There’s the dog that bit my brother.
    The film that we saw last week was awful.
    This is the skirt I bought in the sales.
    Can you identify the defining relative clauses? They tell us which dog, which film and which skirt we are talking about.

    Relative pronouns

    Relative clauses are often introduced by a relative pronoun (usually who, which, that, but when, where and whose are also possible)

    With defining relative clauses we can use who or that to talk about people.

    She’s the woman who cuts my hair.
    She’s the woman that cuts my hair.
    And we can use that or which to talk about things.

    The dog that bit my brother.
    The dog which bit my brother.
    It is also sometimes possible to omit the relative pronoun.

    This is the skirt that I bought in the sales.
    This is the skirt which I bought in the sales.
    This is the skirt I bought in the sales.
    In this sentence ‘skirt’ is the object of the verb (buy). ‘I’ is the subject. When the relative pronoun is the object, it can be omitted.

    The film we saw last week was awful.
    BUT The dog bit my brother. This is not possible because the dog is the subject of the verb, ‘bite’.

    Tuesday, May 7th 2013

      Thanks
      I think you haven’t seen the comma before the relative pronoun.
      look it up in “Common Mistakes in English” part 1.

      Wednesday, May 8th 2013

    It’s correct if you change “that” to “who” because you can’t use “that” in a non-identifying adjective clause.

    Thursday, May 9th 2013

      that’s what I taught, teacher =)

      Thursday, May 9th 2013

Hi Alex. You know my English can’t really get by without engvid.com ! Yeah I rarely leave my comments here it because of my laziness but I always watch your lessons, they are all very useful. I hope I didn’t make mistakes in my comment.

Monday, May 6th 2013

awesome !!! I got 10 correct out of 10 ;)

Monday, May 6th 2013

Thanks for such an interesting lesson,

Monday, May 6th 2013

Thankssss

Monday, May 6th 2013

Very good again, Alex! Maybe the best way to learn phrasal verbs is the real-life examples. Video lessons regarding phrasal verbs are always welcome.

Monday, May 6th 2013

    That’s it precisely!

    Thursday, May 9th 2013

Thanks for the useful lesson Alex !

Monday, May 6th 2013

In my opinion, the quiz had to be more complicated. Anyway, very useful lesson ;)

Monday, May 6th 2013

Hi, Alex. Thank you.

Monday, May 6th 2013

Thank you so much, Alex! This was really useful.

Monday, May 6th 2013

Thanks so much, Alex. I enjoy your lesson :)

Tuesday, May 7th 2013

great lesson :”>

Tuesday, May 7th 2013

Thank you, Alex, that was a very useful lesson. I’ve always had a problem with using phrasal verbs correctly. As a matter of fact, I noticed that native speakers use them all the time in conversation!

Tuesday, May 7th 2013

    Yeah, that’s why they’re important to know. :)

    Thursday, May 9th 2013

NICE !! again a step smarter :)

Tuesday, May 7th 2013

I can’t see the video.Might I live in China. That is the reason.

Tuesday, May 7th 2013

    Yes, that would be why. A lot of our videos have been uploaded by other people to sites like Youku, so you can try searching there; you can also use web proxies!

    Wednesday, May 8th 2013

I’m proud of myself (test: 100% good) and happy with your teaching. Thanks Alex, a very clear lesson.

Tuesday, May 7th 2013

what is the meaning of “get through”?

Tuesday, May 7th 2013

Amazing!!!!

Tuesday, May 7th 2013

hi Alex. thanks for 5 phrasal verbs. it is very interesting :D

Tuesday, May 7th 2013

Got up = rise from bed or really any lying position
Get along= to have a good relationship with someone
Get ahead= to succed at work or make progress
Get by=to survive, how do you get by without facebook ? ;)
Get together= to meet, we firstly got together with my boyfriend in Turkey ;)
Thank you, Alex !

Tuesday, May 7th 2013

    You got it!

    Thursday, May 9th 2013

Thanks teacher. It was an amazing class… see you next!

Tuesday, May 7th 2013

Thank you teacher

Tuesday, May 7th 2013

What does “Put it down mean”? I hear a lot but I don’t understand the meaning.
For example on Pitbull’s song Internacional Love he says” You put it down like New York city”…
What does that mean?
Thanks

Tuesday, May 7th 2013

    You can see this website: http://www.engvid.com/phrasal-verbs-put/ . Alex taught us how to use PUT in phrasal verbs. This lesson is also very useful.

    Tuesday, May 7th 2013

Thank you Alex, for new phrasal verbs.

Tuesday, May 7th 2013

    You got it. Just make sure you say “I’m getting together with my friends at 6″ if you mean in the future.

    Thursday, May 9th 2013

    Thursday, May 9th 2013

thanks teacher

please answer me ..i need to know

Tuesday, May 7th 2013

    Good Q I wanna know if there is any difference too. I put the Q on Yahoo and once I get the answer I’ll put it here :)

    Wednesday, May 8th 2013

    “Get along with: have smooth relations; “My boss and I get along very well”
    Get on with something to give your time to something and make progress with it
    The sooner we finish the speeches, the sooner we can get on with the celebration.”

    Wednesday, May 8th 2013

      thanks a lot flawless..

      i really appreciate this…

      Wednesday, May 8th 2013

    I’ve heard “get on” used in a similar way as “get along with,” but mostly in British contexts.

    “Do you get on with your boss?”
    “Yeah, we get on okay.”

    Imagine it in a British accent. :)

    Thursday, May 9th 2013

useful lesson! thank you, Alex.

Tuesday, May 7th 2013

Wao!, it’s incredible, I understood everything you said. Actually I say that you’re my best teacher, every time I see your videos I only hear pure english, your pronunciation is awesome and I’m learning from you. Tank you very much, God bless you.

Get down please. I’m getting by with all this lessons. So, I’m gonna get up to get ahead. Get lost yourself.

Thursday, May 9th 2013

Today I ain´t gonna get together with you, because I wanna get up fresh tomorrow to get ahead on my exams. If I hang out I won´t get by to do duties. Don´t bother we still get along each other. For one second I thought that GET ALONG meant someone who follow, trust or allow yourself to be take by anyone or ideas. Please,is there some phrasal verb for this? Thanks Alex !

Thursday, May 9th 2013

thanks for this lesson.You’re a nice teacher.
